Time to get ready!
December is here tomorrow and it is time to bring out the Christmas decorations and get serious about Christmas shopping and planning meals for Christmas Day.
I love everything about Christmas. I know it is also a sad time for lots of people who have lost their loved ones. The first Christmas morning after my parents died I woke up and cried and cried. Then I thought I must be brave and happy for my children and for all my family who are still here and I mustn't let my sadness ruin the festivities of Christmas. From that time on I have enjoyed Christmas again. Of course I still think of my parents and others who are no longer with us, but I make sure I stay happy and busy and keep the spirit of Christmas alive.
So, have fun everyone. Enjoy yourselves doing your Christmas shopping and have wonderfully happy times at your work and social functions. I hope all your Christmas wishes come true.
